Quinte Conservation seeks public input as it updates Consecon Lake floodplain maps

January 23, 2024

Quinte Conservation is updating the floodplain maps along Consecon Lake to reflect changes in the watershed over the past four decades.

Quinte Conservation will use current land use and climate data as well as improved technology to update the 1981 mapping.

A Public Information Centre (PIC) will be held on Monday, February 12 from 5:30 pm – 7 pm at the Consecon United Church (224 Mill Street, Consecon).

Quinte Conservation strives to protect people and property from flooding through its flood forecasting and warning program and Section 28 of the Conservation Authorities Act. Floodplain mapping is an asset for both of these programs, as well as municipal planning and flood emergency response.

Updates to floodplain mapping can result in:

  • A reduction in effort, cost and time for development application review in flood prone areas without accurate mapping.
  • A reduction in studies a proponent is required to undertake before development.
  • Increased accuracy of regulatory flood lines.
  • Increased accuracy of flood lines for different flood events, which can be used to identify flood prone properties and municipal infrastructure for notification, inspection and/or evacuation during a flood.
  • Models that can be used for other studies.
  • Data that can be used to support municipal road and sewer improvement projects, natural heritage mapping for municipal plans and more.
